Shrimp with Crab Stuffing

Posted by 2 on

  Lots of people do oyster stuffing for the holidays and if you're looking for a good oyster stuffing recipe, take a peek at some of these links: Xinh's Oyster Stuffing (Taylor Shellfish) Food Network Oyster Stuffing (there's bacon in this one...) Martha Stewart   We are thinking something a little different this year... a crab stuffing.  And further, a crab stuffing with dried cherries in it.  Kwazy talk!  I'm telling you - it was fabulous.  If the cherries sound like not your style, feel free to replace with another high flavor note item like a caper or a fine chopped dill pickle.  Lemon zest?  Or just let the crab stand on its own - it will.  Stuff your shrimp, your turkey or even a few delicate sole filets with this excellent stuff.  YUM.     Ingredients ~ makes enough to stuff about 20 large shrimp (one pound) 20 large shrimp (about a pound) peeled and deveined ¼ cup minced shallots ¼ cup minced celery 3 cloves minced garlic ½ cup chopped mushroom 1 T olive oil 1 ½ T chopped dried cherries ¼ pound crab meat 1 tsp seafood seasoning 1 T Worcestershire 3 T mayo 1 cup panko breadcrumbs Salt and pepper to taste Sautee the shallots, celery, mushrooms and garlic in a pan on the stove in the olive oil until they're softened.  Remove from the heat and fold in the cherries, crab meat, seafood seasoning, Worcestershire and mayo.  Add the breadcrumbs last, and fold those in too.  Let the stuffing sit for a couple of minutes for the breadcrumbs to absorb the liquid in the stuffing and then you should be able to grab a pinch and make it into a nice ball to stuff your (seasoned with salt and pepper) shrimp with!  Bake the shrimp at 350 for 13-15 minutes.  Enjoy!
